its not a tracking sensor, but there is equipment that can detect when a large volume of cash is nearby, but its much like a metal detector you have
to be pretty close to detect it. And yes it has to do with the metalic filament in the security strip inbedded in the larger bills, get enough of them
together in one spot and the signal that is returned from the detector can be picked up, but not by satellite.
I think the detection radius is something like 5 to 10 feet only
Kind of why anyone with a large horde of cash should never keep all the bills in the same place, not only in the case of an accident like fire, water
damage etc. But in the unforseen chance that you are involved in some sort of criminal acitivity you make your nest egg real easy to find.
Thats why you always see "misers" putting some cash here, some there, some everywhere and usually they end up misplacing thousands....
Just like your stocks and any other large cash volumes the smartest thing you can do is diversify your holdings which makes your financial security
not dependant on only one vehicle.
